A short distance in, we passed a large clearing with great views south towards the mountains in the Hoffman Wilderness.

My dad and I went out and explored a new area of state land, formerly owned by the Ragged Mountain Club, along The Branch in North Hudson. The Branch is a fast flowing trout stream that flows out of Elk Lake and eventually empties into the Schroon River. We parked at a new DEC parking area along the west side of Elk Lake Road and followed an old logging road north and west.
